Maria Nilsson Waller is a freelance dance artist and choreographer. As a performer she has danced in pieces by, amongst others, Liv O’Donoghue, Bo Arenander, Per Jonsson, Helena Franzén, Susan Rethorst, Hervé Koubi, Myriam Naisy and Fiona Quilligan, and her own work has been presented at various festivals and venues around Sweden, France and Ireland. It has been described variously as idiosyncratic, mesmerizing, pure, quirkily humorous, and as poetry from the lingonberry forest.

Since 2009 Maria has based herself in Dublin, Ireland, where she has continued to dance and create as an independent artist, dividing her work between Ireland and Sweden. Her solo Walker was selected to represent Ireland at the Dublin International Dance Festival in 2011 and has since been presented at a number of festivals around the country, as has her dance-installation Paperwork. In 2010 she was awarded Östersunds Kulturstipendium which resulted in the piece Ingenmansland – a creation for five dancers and three Swedish folk musicians.

Maria is supported by the Irish Arts Council, Dance Ireland, Estrad Norr and Länskulturen, Sweden. In collaboration with these partners, her latest work Last Land was developed and performed in 2012. She is Associate Artist with Dance Ireland 2013/2014.

​”Maria’s movement quality is supreme and it is an utmost pleasure to watch her. Both her dance expression and technique are so refined it is hard to resist the charm of her solo. Pure and entirely mesmerising”​

Walker, Irish Theatre Magazine, 2011​
